another newbie needs help w/ buying a bike

Friend,  I have been selling and racing bicycles now for 20 years, and
I'll
let you in on a little secret.  They are essentially all the same.  You
should pick  a bike at the shop where you feel most comfortable.  Short
of that, pick the one that  is the color you like the best.  Just make
sure it
fits.

It comes down to this. As with cars.

I select my bikes firstly on what my favorite LBS sells. Then the type of bike
and price range. And then it comes to things like color and looks and image
and all the other non-technical stuff.

That, too, of course.
